    Wild West Theme

    Need some help from the cowboys! My workplace is doing a wild west theme for Halloween. I'm in charge of music and am looking for song or album suggestions. There are a few decent albums/playlists on iTunes - this one is probably my favourite:

    http://itunes.apple.com/us/album/wes...al/id271775249

    Can you suggest some specific songs/albums/artists to look out for? Naturally, I'll include Will Smith's "Wild Wild West" as no wild west theme would be complete without it

    Well, you know ending the night with "Happy Trails to you" by Dale & Roy is a must.

    The country chart at billboard is a good place to start for modern stuff: http://www.billboard.com/#/charts/country-songs

    I'm about a month or two behind on new Country releases but these tunes from there are pretty good
    Blown Away- Carrie Underwood
    Time Is love - Josh Turner
    Pontoon - Little Big Town
    Fastest Girl In Town - Miranda Lambert
    How Country Feels - Randy Houser

    I don't know what kind of workplace you have but I'm guessing you wont' be playing country all night and just need a few classic / well known to fit the theme? Then I'd go with a few of these...

    Dwight Yokam - Pretty much anything but you need Guitars Cadillacs, all his stuff has this great swing steel guitar sound.
    Travis Tritt - Here's A Quarter
    George Strait - I Cross My Heart - great slow love song, Here For a Good Time - recent solid hit, Amarillo By Morning
    Trisha Yearwood - Wrong Side Of Memphis, She's In Love With The Boy
    Brooks & Dunn - There's a lot here so just buy or check out "Number 1s... and Then Some" but you must have Honky Tonk Stomp, Brand New Man, Hillbillie Delux, & Boot Scootin Boogie.

    I can get you a lot more after going through my collection on my external HD.

    My workplace is a community recreation centre. We'll be decorating the lobby as a saloon. I'm not looking for any new country whatsoever. The playlist below has tracks from Roy Rogers, Tex Ritter, Gene Autry, etc.

    The album 'Return Of The Gringo' by Prince Fatty & Mutant H-Fi

    Ah, okay, if you're not catering to cowboys but fitting to a theme those on the itunes list would prolly be perfect, beats t-swift for sure. I'm used to playing a lot of pop / modern country, pretty popular here.
